The Condo

Welcome to Ma'alaea Banyans #15!

Ma’alaea Banyans is located in Ma’alaea, central to all of Maui.  This romantic getaway is quiet & private yet central to everything. Look no further for a perfect Honeymoon or Anniversary get-away, whether it’s your first or your 50th!

This location has some of the most pristine and lightly visited beaches on the island. It’s just a short walk to Sugar Beach (5 miles of beautiful, sandy, secluded beach). Or, walk directly to a small hidden beach right in front of the complex.

This is the best kept secret on Maui!

Ma’alaea village is a gem with its central location and its fantastic trade winds. They provide a cooling breeze that keeps the temperatures just right. Just in case, we have A/C and Ceiling Fans in every room.

From the lanai, gaze out and watch the sunrise over Haleakala (House of the Sun), the long dormant 10,000 foot volcano. Watch green sea turtles bobbing up for air and rolling in the surf, even sunning themselves on the beach.

Beautifully landscaped grounds with a heated pool will melt away your stress. Slip into to the pool, enjoy the ocean view and relax in the Maui sun.

This is also the only complex in Ma’alaea with a Jacuzzi!

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is fully equipped with:

    • Cooking Utensils

    • Pots and Pans

    • Blender

    • All of the essential supplies to cook & enjoy your meal

    • Coffee Maker & Keurig (for you coffee lovers!)

    • Oceanfront BBQ Area

Our Master Suite has a cal king-sized bed with a brand new mattress.  This condo has windows in the bedroom & living room-- the perfect placement to allow the prevailing trade winds to keep the unit cool.

The living room has a sofa sleeper. 

Our bathroom is beautifully tiled with a clean updated and stylish look. We provide bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, even beach towels.

Enjoy a meal on the private lanai, or just sit out and enjoy the view.

A 5 minute walk takes you to Ma’alaea Harbor where you will find:
A Small Grocery Store, a Deli, Craft Market & Restaurants.

    • Maui Ocean Center (Maui’s #1 tourist attraction)

    • the Pacific Whale Foundation

    • Miniature Golf

    • Shopping

    • Access to the Ocean Activities Available On Maui! (sunset dinner cruises, deep sea fishing, snorkeling tours & whale watching)

Our location in Ma’alaea makes getting anywhere on the island easy:

    • 15 minutes from the airport.

    • A short drive south to the long village of Kihei + the resorts of Wailea.

    • About 20 minutes from the old whaling village of Lahaina (known for its magnificent Banyan Tree, shopping galleries and restaurants).

You could not have picked a better location to start exploring Maui!

We have stayed in other rentals on the island and often found they were lacking in amenities (especially in the kitchen.) Naturally, we have gone to great lengths to make sure that we provide everything you need to make your trip comfortable & inviting.

We provide an initial supply of: Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, and Other dispensable items to get you started on your vacation.

Steve & Gail,

Mahalo!! We have built so many memories in your home & in Maui!! Your home was spotless & so comfortable! Just to point out:

  • easy access to a private beach

  • central to pretty much everything on Maui

  • small grocery/convenience store down the street & Target 10 minutes away!!

  • your binder was very helpful

  • beautiful view of the mountain (also where we got engaged!!!!)

Everything was just perfect!! We cannot wait to come back & stay here again.


Gail & Steve,

We had such a great time staying at your place. The condo had everything we needed… from cooking utensils to beach equipment! This location is amazing too with its private beach and close proximity to other awesome Maui hotspots. Some of the places that we liked were Sugar Beach Bakery (hot Malasadas 6am - 10am-- try em!), Brekkie Bowls for Acai, and Paia Fish Market.

We also loved Ho’okipa Beach Park where we watched surfers and got to see turtles on the sand. The Gypsy App for the road to Hana was also great!

We will definitely come back!

We have pre-booked for Dec 2019. 
Happy New Year!
Mahalo Gail & Steve!!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. Loved waking up in the morning with that incredible view. First time here in Maui was incredible!! Can’t wait to come back and explore some more.

Mahalo for the little extras (chairs & umbrellas) 



Aloha Steve + Gail!!!

You have an amazing piece of paradise here in Maui. thank you for sharing your beautiful hale with us-- we truly enjoyed it here in all its beauty. Watching the sea turtles swim around every morning while having our coffee from the lanai was sooo special!!! Sugar Beach is incredible!!! A short walk down to get there and the most amazing experience of our lives! Snorkeling the reefs, swimming with sea turtles for hours. A heavenly piece of paradise.

Ryan + Shauna

Gail & Steve,

Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us during our stay here in Maui. We had a great vacation here! Your home is so clean and organized and appointed with such quality. It was so easy to be here. If we needed something - you had it.

We had so much fun during our daily adventures but it was always nice to come “home” to your condo at the end of the day.

Thanks for everything-- and continued success.

Steve & Gail,

Thank you for welcoming us to stay in your home during our stay in Maui. Your condo is absolutely beautiful with an amazing view! We loved sitting on the lanai, eating breakfast, and watching the waves roll in. Your home is perfectly located where we could easily travel and explore all the greatest places on Maui. The Beach Bum right down the street had good fish tacos, and the cooler and beach gear provided was much appreciated! Thank you again for allowing us to enjoy your home!

Gail & Steve

We truly enjoyed our time at your condo. The decor and amenities are top notch! Love the details. Highlights included whale and turtle watching from the lanai. We also loved walking along Sugar Beach and getting coffee and baked goods at Sugar Beach Bake Shop.

In Lahaina we loved the view and Hula Pie at Kimos and the fabulous magic/comedy show at Warren and Annabelles. Highly recommend!

Mahalo and Blessings,

Aloha to our guests!

Yes we occasionally stay in our unit, it's a great way to make sure that we have all the amenities we would want if we were the guest!

We truly appreciate and enjoy the notes you leave here. We also know that current guests enjoy reading all the tips on activities and restaurants. We will add a tip here as well: if you are here during the months of January through March, we highly recommend the Pacific Whale Foundation Whale Watching tour. 

We look forward to reading what all of our future guests have to say!

Mahalo for staying with us and we hope you can come again soon.

Steve + Gail



Aloha Steve + Gail,

This has been the most memorable and amazing trip and it’s all thanks to you. Everything about this slice of paradise has fulfilled our wildest expectations.

You simply thought of everything (including my wife’s penchant for using way too many forks). The view is everything and more, and probably our favorite part of the room. We can’t believe we saw turtles and even Whales far into the distance.

We can’t wait to come back and create more beautiful, lasting memories!

April 2019

We had an incredible stay here! Friendly, quiet, beautiful and perfectly located to explore Maui from. We love to snorkel and did so every day we were here. I highly recommend the Maui Snorkeling Guide available at TropicalSnorkeling.com. Costs ~ $25 but worth it if you are serious about Snorkeling. We also liked the Snorkel Store, which has a free daily report.

Other highlights include The Road To Hana- We took the tip on the Gypsy guide and loved it! So we also got the one for Haleakala and loved that too. We went for Sunset, and it was awesome!

We mostly ate here, enjoying the BBQ and Balcony. Like it here so much we brought home dinner from Paia Fish Co. to eat it here.


Mahalo- Will be back!

Aloha Gail & Steve

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. The condo was everything that we needed in the most perfect location. We loved sitting out on the lanai for breakfast and watching the turtles in the early evening. Thank you for all the beach supplies and recommendations, we have had a wonderful start to our honeymoon.

Hi Steve & Gail

We’re having a lovely time in your condo, enjoying every minute especially in the Lanai- the sounds of the whales is so relaxing. We enjoy driving around Lahaina, Kihei and Wailea

We’re creating more memories on our 2nd time here in maui. Thanks for sharing your condo to us even for just a week. Your place is a paradise. MAHALO!!!!

Maricel & Edwin

PS we can only think of one word to describe your place, absolutely brilliant!! Sorry two words. Lol.




Gail & Steve-

Your condo unit is beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoy having coffee in the morning on the lanai and then walking on Sugar Beach. We have been accessing the beach by the park at the end of the street. We’ve enjoyed several of your suggestions (Beach Bums was great). 

We hope to visit again

Neil & Ann Marie

PS loved seeing many turtles in the surf in the late afternoon/early evenings. Also booked Road to Hana with Dynamic Tours (trip advisor). Definitely would not recommend this company.




Gail & Steve

Despite a rocky start with the key code, everything worked out perfectly thereafter. Yes, the binoculars were a welcome treat to be able to sit on the Lanai and watch the turtles!

I come to Maui almost yearly to see family. I’ll keep my eye open for this condo again!




Gail + Steve-

Thank you so much for opening your home to us. This was our first trip to Hawaii and we’ve enjoyed every minute. The condo had everything we needed- the cooler getting the most use. It definitely came in handy during our fishing excursion with the Maui Fun Charters and also on the scenic Road to Hana trip.

Thanks again- and we hope to visit again soon!

Aloha Gail + Steve,

We loved every minute of our stay at your fabulous home. We could not have found a better place to stay and we loved how centrally located this place is. We loved having the harbor so close and frequently walked there for boat tours (snorkeling at Molokini with Saul Maui was fabulous- highly recommend- and a sunset cruise on the Calypso - stunning views), coffee and tea at the general store (they also have a fabulous pineapple mule), food and drinks at a variety of places and access to a gym + cross fit at Club Maui (it was $100 for a couple for a week with access to both).

Another highlight was dinner at Maui Chef’s Table. It was a great experience, we would highly recommend for foodies. We are so sad to go home but we will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our stay. Nice to check out the beach & pool. Turtles were cool too. I recommend the Road to Hana tour and Mama’s Grill.

Thanks for the lovely stay and the binoculars!! 

They’re awesome!






Gail + Steve

Had such an amazing stay for our Honeymoon + first time to Maui! Condo is beautiful and the central location was perfect for us! The view from the lanai is incredible and we loved watching the turtles. The provided beach chairs + coolers were super appreciated and helpful. Cold drinks are essential in these temperatures. We enjoyed a trip to Lanai with Trilogy (highly recommend) the Road to Hana, Big Beach, Lahaina town and Haleakala.

One of our favorite eateries was Tante’s Fishmarket right down the street! Good food and a great happy hour at a convenient location! All in all a wonderful stay. Now we’re off to the Big Island!

Gail & Steve

Thank you so much for letting us stay here in such short notice after our disaster with our previous host. Your place is nothing short of amazing. This was our first trip to Maui after we got engaged and we can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful home.

We managed to go diving with both Lahaina Divers and Maui Dreams Dive Co for both the Lanai Cathedrals & a night dive off Kihei. We also enjoyed the Feast at Lele and just snorkeling everywhere. Yet the elusive sea turtles have yet to be seen, but we will definitely come back for them!

PS Managed to do the entire loop of Hana Highway with a Mustang without much difficulty!

Thanks for welcoming us!
Albert & Elena




Aloha Steve & Gail

Despite a 6 ½ hour trip from the airport to your amazing condo thanks to closed roads for a wildfire across Hwy 30 from here- our trip was Aaaah-mazing! Thank you BOTH for so quickly calling me in response to my desperate plea for advice that night! And our gratitude also to Cathy- our eyes on the fire & her offers to help haul our luggage from the Pond!

This unit is truly everything you said! You definitely have thought of everything! The gypsy app was wonderful- we should have used it for our entire stay & not just the Road to Hana! We loved that trip, Kihei, the drive around West Maui (the blowhole!) & found Warren & Annabelles show to be a great place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary night!

Thanks & Mahalo for great memories
Becky & Les




Aloha Gail + Steve

What a great place! This condo is so well equipped with everything one would need- except coffee for the 1st morning. We arrived late + did not know where to get supplies so we had to find a place to get coffee in the AM. Perhaps a couple of coffee pods could be added. 

All that aside, we loved staying here + with the airflow we didn’t need the A/C. The view from the lanai is spectacular + we loved sitting there when we shared our wine. We went to the “beach” & watched the turtles. Loved it!

Kate & Mike



Steve & Gail

Thanks for the amazing stay & memories we made at your place!!!

PS: the binoculars are great 🙂

(Honeymoon!) “5 Stars” *****

Steve + Gail - 

We loved your place! Best part is the amazing view. We used the snorkel gear and saw sea turtles @ Black Rock Beach. Road to Hana was great. (keep in mind you will have NO Phone Service on 95% of the Road to Hana.) We paid 7 bucks for the gypsy app and it was so good. Not sure if we would have found all the sights without it.

We had a good dinner @ Beach Bums (right down the street) and the smoked spam sandwich was yummy!

All of your amenities were so useful. We would love to come back some day!! Mahalo!

Dear Steve + Gail,

Thank you for letting us stay at 215 during our first trip to Maui. We made memories to last a lifetime. Our adventures include:

    • Walking from the condo down Sugar Beach (hour each way)

    • Road to Hana - we spent a day each way (popular route + the back route)

    • Haleakala

    • Lao State Monument

    • Mama’s Fish House

    • Kaanapali beach

    • Lounging at the pool + jacuzzi

And so much more. The “Maui revealed” book came in very handy. We brought it with us every day! We couldn’t have asked for a better place to call home these past 5 nights. We hope to return again soon!

Debbie + Jesus




Dear Gail and Steve,

We really enjoyed our stay at your place. Outstanding views from the lanai and tasteful interior of your condo were cherry on top of our first trip to Maui.

Thank you!

Steve & Gail:

Your place is amazing! The location to the view… just awesome.

Some of our favorites:

  1. Road to Hana- something to remember! We took the advice of others & used the Gypsy app. It will tell you to go past Hana and see 7 pools but we actually found the hike to the waterfall to be more captivating. (Activity)

  2. Pai Fish Market (Kihei)- Yum. (Food)

  3. Ka’anapali Beach - Views, Calm water, facilities. (Beach)


Thanks for all the details!

Justin + Kori Cumley

Go pack go!!





We had a great time during our short two night stay. Had dinner in Paia the first night and did the Road to Hana with full loop returning on south side. Made for a very long day but was so amazing with many waterfalls and black, red & whithe sandy beaches. We used Shaka Guide App & would def recommend to others.

Your condo was perfect - clean, great location, amazing views! We wish we could stay longer and may have to come back soon!

Bobby & Lauren




We thanking you for wonderful place. It was a very nice stay.

Ramere and Virgo






Aloha Gail & Steve

The stay was excellent! Your property is tremendous. Morning coffee & evening dinners on the lanai are spectacular, with added bonus of whales breathing in the distance or the turtle heads popping up below. I think you guys have pretty much thought of everything to provide your guests… thank you.

Recommendations for 1st timers:

Groceries- Walmart

Beach - DT Fleming Park

Biggest Waves - Peahi “Jaws”

App - “Gypsy Guide to Maui” - worth the money

Road to Hana- start early… its long… aunty sandy’s banana bread is a must. An umbrella is not a bad idea.

Haleakala - Take some long sleeve clothing, its chilly at 10,000 feet high in Maui.

Roadside fruit stands are tasty. Best pineapple + avocado I have ever eaten.

We will be back! Mahalo

My husband + I enjoyed our stay in your condo. It was perfect for our honeymoon. This area of Maui is beautiful + hope to return again one day.


  • We enjoyed coffee/breakfast at the grocery mart up the road.

  • Trilogy sunset captain dinner cruise at Maalaea Harbor

  • The Mill House for a nice Dinner / Drinks

Thank you so much for opening your beautiful place to us
